Justice for Laughing Boy: Connor Sparrowhawk - A Death by Indifference

by Sara Ryan - £12.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781785923487 | ISBN 10: 178592348x

On July 4th 2013, Connor Sparrowhawk, also known as Laughing Boy or LB, was found dead in a specialist NHS unit. Connor, who had autism and epilepsy, had a seizure while in the bath and no member of staff was on hand to stop him from drowning. An entirely preventable death.
 
Sara Ryan presents a frank, sometimes funny and touching account of her son's early life and preventable death and the unfolding #JusticeforLB campaign. This serves as a wake-up call to all of us and asks: can we really claim that we respect the life and dignity of learning disabled people?
